In Ķemeri National Park near Kaņieris Lake, a clean-up was organized to preserve biodiversity and restore a calcareous herb marsh, which is also an important habitat for various plant species. During the clearing work, the bushes and trees harvested in the previous winter were removed.

More than 40 high school students from six European Union member states – Latvia, Romania, Cyprus, Poland, Italy, and Bulgaria – participated in the event within the ERASMUS project “Volunteerism and Active Citizenship: From Individuals to Organizations”.
